TV drama Jericho
is set for a comeback - a big screen version of the short lived series is under development.
The show, a portrayal of America post-nuclear attacks, was scrapped by network CBS after its first full season due to poor ratings. But a campaign by a devoted group of fans convinced network executives to bring the show back for a seven-episode second season, before flagging ratings once more resulted in the series being cancelled in 2008.
However, now the program's stars, including Skeet Ulrich
and Ashley Scott
, are set to reprise their roles on the big screen, according to executive producer Jon Turteltaub.
He tells Moviehole.
net, "We're developing a feature for Jericho. It would not require you to have seen the TV show, but it get into life after an event like this on a national scale. It would be the bigger, full on American version of what's going on beyond the town in Jericho."
